Care Package

My parents know that I have been trying to save money, so they sent me this nice care package for easter to provide me with much needed sustenance. Lets see whats inside... 1. A bag of fun size skittle packets, Sweet! They remembered my skittle addiction. 2. 6 single serve Jif peanut butter cups 3. Edible easter grass ... o.k? 4. Some laughing cow babybels and spreadable swiss 5. A hickory farms ham and crackers ... this is getting kind of weird 6. 5 little strawberry candies 7. About fifty single serve splenda packets (err...) 8. A bunny basket with creepy eyes What a strange selection of goodies. If any of you wondered where I got my weirdness from, you now know.

Orchid Care Questions

So I have been given this orchid - in bloom... I really don't know how to care for it.... right now, it's been on my kitchen bar for about a week getting fluorescent light. My father grows a bunch of orchids at home, but he just sort of "plants" them somewhere an forgets about them - which has worked very well for him :p Any care recommendations? Is there anything particularly wrong with cutting the flower stem off (if no, where should I cut)? I do have a balcony, it faces North and the plant is in a plastic pot (maybe 1.5 quart size) with wood chip mulch. thanks :)

If certified in CPR are you required to help in an emergency situation? And if you don't can you be sued? Answered

I am considering CPR certification and I am aware of the "Good Samaritan Law" that protects you from lawsuits for trying to help a victim and failing to save their life.  My concern is, are you bound by the law to help in every emergency situation that arises?  If I choose not to intervene are there legal ramifications?

How to care for an injured axolotl?

I have an axolotl (Milton) in a community tank with some gold fish, and a Gourami. They all lived happily in my 75 gallon tank for several months. Today I get home after work to find my Gourami nipping at Milton's gills. It must have been happening all day because his gills are much less fluffy than they were before. I instantly removed him from the tank and put him in my 15 gallon tank upstairs with a few goldfish. He keeps going up for air and is currently perched lazily on some plants in the newly filled tank upstairs. Without most of his gills, is he going to suffocate? What special care will he need to insure he survives?  Please help! I am really worried about him.     PS: I would post pictures but he has moved while I was writing this and is now hiding in his cave.

How do I care for my Sewing Machine?

Sooooo...How do I care for my Sewing Machine? My singer instruction manual isn't very though rough. It is written as if I should know all this stuff already! Where should I squirt oil on it? How often should I clean it? What is that weird smell it makes when I'm sewing, is that normal? It doesn't quite smell like burning...but doesn't not smell like burning!!! What is a good setup for sewing(table/chair/light ratios)? Does the dust jacket really do anything besides keep dust off the machine, does dust matter? What is the deal with metal and plastic bobbins, is there a difference in uses? How long should a needles life usually be? After I pinned the fabric should I take the pins out before the needle reaches them? So many questions!!!!!

Praying Mantis Dying? HELP!

I have what I believe is a large Indian Mantis.  I fould it on our deck and have kept it for about 3 weeks so far.  It molted a week ago and for the first time I saw wings.  The covering of the wings is a little shredded, but look ok.  Starting yesterday it started looking very lethargic and was hanging by 1 leg from the top screen of it's cage where it hasn't left in 3 weeks except when it molted.  It looks like it is dying and not showing any signs of strength or interest in food.  What can I do, if anything?  Temps here in New England are in the 30's at night and I don't think it would stand a chance if I let it go or I would.

Things a plant would say...

I need a nice, long list of things a plant would say to a human.  Humor and biology geekiness are welcome!  Patches to folks who come up with the most phrases or the best phrases.  Keep it PG though, ok? Here are some examples: "I think you should become a meatatarian" "So when are you going to evolve and run on sunshine, like I do?" "Gahhh!  Aphids!  Get 'em off!  Get 'em off!" "I'm thirsty.  Water Me!" "Audrey II is my hero." "No worries, baby - I'm organic!" "When you belch it's like a breath of fresh air." "My pistol is useless against insects!" "If you kill me, I think you should try a rock garden next."

How to eliminate perennial ryegrass from my centipede (I think) lawn? Answered

I had to have a drain tile dug up and replaced in my front yard a while back. In order to prevent the loose dirt from washing into the street when it rained, I put down perennial rye seed to hold the sod together. Now I'd like to have all the same grass again, but the rye is proving to be more tenacious than I bargained for. I've tried Googling for a rye-specific herbicide, but no luck so far. I've been just pulling up the rye shoots, but I'm hoping for a less labor-intensive approach. Any lawn-care experts out there that can recommend a product or process that might help get rid of the rye without killing off the rest of the lawn or making me grow gills or a second head or something?

How to take care orphan kittens? Answered

I had a cat who died after giving birth.. she had a complication and after 2 surgery she died and left 5 kittens in my care. I gave them Lactol, its powder milk for puppies and kittens but they get diarrhea. So i give them pedialyte to calm their tummy and sugar+water and gel vitamins (nutri-plus gel). They are 3 weeks old now, going to 4 weeks in 2 days. And I need suggestion on what to do next. What to give them. Should I try giving them kitten food or something? because I think the milk only get them diarrhea again. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ok I've add pics of the kittens all big now. Only 2 of them survive after hard struggle. One is a female tortoiseshell (Arathea) and the other one is a male dark grey tabby (Ceyx). There's pic of them playing at the backyard. Very very active kittens, almost a handful but I'm happy they are growing up healthy. One of the things I would like to share is.. the vet told me you can feed baby food/baby porridge to sick cats or kittens if milk is not an option or if they have diarrhea. You can give a red rice porridge for 3-6 month old babies to animals. You can also add a little honey to the mix. Red rice porridge have high vit B which is good for cats and kittens. I hope this can be useful.

Caring for a toad with a broken and infected arm? Answered

Last weekend I found a toad with his arm trapped in a mousetrap.  I don't know exactly how long he was there, but I discovered him when I heard this shuffling sound from the back of my garage and heard flies buzzing.  Upon investigating, I found poor Toady.  The flies had already laid eggs on his wound.  He was trying to hop away attached to the trap.   His arm is clearly broken.  He didn't have significant blood loss, but when I first opened the trap his tiny bones were visible at the injury site. I put Toady in a small bucket lined with moss and vegetation, along with adding a little bit of water, and covered the bucket with a dishtowel.  I used cotton swabs dipped in saline to clean the wound and applied antibiotic ointment (Neosporin without painkiller).  I also tied a thread slightly above the injury site to act as a tourniquet and prevent further infection, and possibly allow for his limb to naturally come off. Below the injury site is swollen, discolored and infected, growing a fuzzy fungus.  I've been checking on Toady every other day (I wasn't wanting to stress him out too much with frequent visits), cleaning his wound and infection and applying antibiotic ointment.  His arm is clearly dead weight and can't be salvaged.   I've put various bugs, slugs/snails and worms in there with him but I haven't seen him eat.  I put a june bug in there, and the june bug ended up trying to climb onto him but Toady seemed to try and squash the bug with his chest and then hopped over the bug to the other side.  Maybe the beetle is too big for him.  I haven't checked to see if the other goodies I gave him are just hiding under the moss. He doesn't appear to be losing or gaining weight.  He gets stressed whenever I visit, breathing rapidly and either trying to make himself look larger or do the opposite and huddle down, despite how careful and gentle I try and be around him. I'm worried about predators and infection if I were to release him now.  What should I do/not do?  I think I'll try Craigslist here to see if there happens to be an experienced amphibian owner with the proper supplies to care for him.  I doubt any vet here would be able to do anything, and I don't have the money to do so. Is this toad a male?  I thought he was based on his size since he's on the small size, but perhaps it's a youngster?  He doesn't make any noises with me, but I'm not sure if it was him chirping in his bucket or a nearby toad.  I know there's several right in the immediate vicinity.

Can somebody identify this plant?

I bought this plant a couple of weeks ago in the houseplant section of my local garden centre. It came with a label that I soon found to be completely wrong (It's certainly not a cactus) and now I have no idea how to look after it. At first it grew very quickly and then slowed down dramatically, so I fear that it isn’t getting the right care. It has long, smooth, chunky leaves (Though I’m not sure you would call them leaves) and a pale green stem. At first most of the plant was covered with a kind of hydrophobic white powder that has since worn off. If someone could provide the name of this plant that would be perfect, thanks a lot!

How to revive & care for my Calathea SurpriseStar? Answered

I am new Urban Botanist and I recently bought Calathea SupriseStar as a houseplant. Clearly they are very very attractive house plant. But I have managed to make some of their leaves very very crunchy & some are droopy. I know they do not like light much, I have kept them aware from window sill & providing them with indirect sunlight. I do live in the UK, so this means the flat does get a bit cold & when the heater is switched on - it does get a bit dry. I try to generate humidity & mist the leaves. What can I do to revive the droopy & crispy leaves. I absolutely love this plant, want to do what it does to fix it.

Some perspective...and a few References for those that care.

John Elder Robinson,  the author of  "Look Me In The Eye:  my life with Asperger's" writes this:  "Many descriptions of autism and Asperger's describe people like me as 'not wanting contact with others' or 'preferring to play alone'. ...I;d like to be VERY clear about my own feelings: I  did not ever want to be alone.  And all those child psychologists (1960's) who said 'John prefers to play by himself' were DEAD wrong.  I played by myself because (at the time) I was a failure at playing with others...As a young adult, I was lucky to discover and join the world of musicians & soundmen and special-effects people.  People in those lines of work expect to deal with eccentric people. " Elsewhere he writes:  "I suspect that grown-ups drew me out enough as a child to keep me engaged and on a path with my conversational limitations better than children.,,,my inablility to read body language or appearance meant--in a world rife with discrimination-- that I treated everone the same." "I have learned to begin conversations with a question,  like 'How are you?' I realize that many normal people are acting in a superficial and often false manner.  So rather then let them make me feel bad, I'd express my annoyance...Fortunately, I had enough satisfactory exchanges with intelligent grown ups to keep me wanting to interact.  No one would have looked at me thirty years ago and foreseen that I'd have the social skills I have today, or the ability to express the emotions, thoughts, and feelings you read in this book. " From Tony Attwood's book:    "The person may actively seek and enjoy solitude, be a loyal friend and have a distinct sense of humour." As for the Co-Morbid anxiety that occurs with many AS persons;  try this..... Reading the book may help.... References given in the book for your entertainment...... The OASIS Guide to Asperger's Syndrome Look Me In The Eye Asperger's Syndrome Temple Grandin's site Passing as human.... The curious incident of a dog in the nighttime....summary And finally, The world needs ALL kinds of minds.....Temple Grandin. a blog that is aplicable...... How about one on rerouting brain function?  And other then ADAM,   and Temple Grandin,  Thinking in Pictures,   you also should consider seeing Mozart and the Whale. I have had it indicated to me that maybe it was not a good idea to start a conversation about the demonstations of mental and cranial plasiticity, and that it would be better served elsewhere.

"Ask the Experts" DVD launch.

A few users may have heard about me speaking at a conference with some other youths to 350 people, this was the launch of a great DVD made to help teachers, counsellors, youth workers and many other people understand about bereavement from a teenager's or a child's perspective. It was a great project collaboration between Cruse Bereavement Care, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer care and Barnardos. I was on this project from the planning stage, after the grant from the Big deal lottery Fund had been approved. The project took us to the Share centre on a planning day followed by a weekend where we got all the footage for the final project. Not long after the same project took me to Westminster Abbey to speak to MP's and Lords about the state of government help and counselling for bereaved children and teenagers, that initiative was started by MP Alex Davey who was in the same position as a teenager and hopes to improve care for these things throughout the UK. The project was a great thing to do and I personally enjoyed the hoohah out of it. The end product is a great resource and I would really recommend it to any teacher or counsellor who deals with teens, it could help a lot of people, even the likes of clergymen and ministers. I'm not just saying this because I'm in it but that surely helps, it was received really well by everyone at the conference which broached many topics and had a lot of interesting material at it. We also did another youth panel though this time we were asked set questions about the project rather than the audience be able to ask. The DVD should be available from cruse soon, I honestly do think it's worthwhile...Some press about the launch... Medicalnewstoday.comPress release[
